Spring/Summer 2013 hair is parting ways. The biggest beauty trend to come out of New York Fashion Week is the placement and defining of your parting which can go one of two ways.
1. Centre Stage
It was surprising how much the middle parting can vary. From Alexander Wang’s accentuated middle, taped parting to the pairing of tousled waves at Roberto Cavalli. A centre parting can create an air of sophistication and is super flexible for styling. Centre partings were the star of many a fashion week shows, coupling Chanel’s pearl-studded twists or low-slung ponytails at Jil Sander and Rochas.
2. Taking sides
Side partings made its impact on fashion week, with sweeping side partings at Marc Jacobs to DKNY’s more relaxed and casual low side parting. The beauty of the side parting is its ability to disguise a growing out fringe.
